1 2017 Ohio South Grade Referee Test NOTE: Answers are to be based on the FIFA Laws of the Game. More than one answer may be correct for any of the following questions. copy of your answer sheet to at least 24-hours prior to clinic session. 1) Law 11 states that a player in an offside position receiving the ball from an opponent, who deliberately plays the ball (except from the goalkeeper), is not considered to have gained an advantage. 2) In accordance with the Laws of the game at the taking of the kick-off all players must be in their own half of the field (including the kicker) until the ball is kicked into play. 3) The referee blows the whistle to end the first half and as he is walking off towards the sidelines with his fellow officials, a Blue team player, B33, runs up and berates AR1. The referee then issues a red card to player B33. During the halftime interval, the referee team upon discussing the incident determined that the red card was unwarranted and that a yellow card was more appropriate. Just before the end of the half-time interval, the referee changed his original decision and rescinded the red card and issued a yellow card instead to player B33. The referee is allowed to make such a change because the second half kick-off has not yet taken place. 4) The Red team is playing short due to players not arriving on time. You have delegated the responsibility of checking player equipment to the assistant referee on the team bench side. Another Red player arrives and, after the assistant referee checks the player's equipment, the player must wait for the next substitution opportunity for either team before entering the field. 5) A player has committed 4 fouls in about 15 minutes. The first two you decided were trifling and you called advantage on the last two. For this reason, none of these fouls would be counted in determining if this player is persistently infringing the Laws of the Game. 6) Red #2 and Blue #45 are challenging each other for the ball near midfield. With the ball still on the field-of-play Blue #45 s momentum takes her off the field and Red #18 follows her and pushes Blue #45 to the ground in retaliation for an earlier foul. The referee stops play. What is the correct restart? A. Indirect Free Kick (IFK) taken on the touchline opposite where the infraction occurred B. Direct Free Kick (DFK) taken on the touchline opposite where the infraction occurred C. Dropped ball where the ball was when play was stopped D. Throw-In for the Blue team E. Indirect Free Kick (IFK) where the ball was when play was stopped F. Direct Free Kick (IFK) where the ball was when play was stopped

2 7) In a BU17 game, player A4 dribbles the ball past the goalkeeper at the top of the penalty area and takes a shot on an open goal. During the play a dog has run onto the field, and is able to playfully knock the ball down and prevent it from going into the goal. The attacker A4, who has followed his shot, quickly runs up and kicks the ball into the open goal immediately after it was touched by the dog. What should the referee do? A. Award the goal B. A goal cannot be allowed C. Restart with a Kick-off D. Restart with an IFK E. Restart with a Penalty kick F. Restart with a Goal kick G. Restart with a Corner Kick H. Restart with a Dropped ball 8) A player, A4, is attacking the opponent's goal from inside the penalty area. With the defending goalkeeper, G19, and a teammate,g5, guarding the goal, another defender, G17, carelessly tackles the attacker A4 and causes the shot to be deflected wide of the goal. How should the referee proceed? A. Caution G17 (show a yellow card) B. The incident by itself does not require a card C. Send off G17 (show a red card) D. Show a yellow card and then a red card in sequence 9) With the Blue team in clear possession near midfield and making a defender-free run on goal, the referee stops the game due to a serious injury to a Green team player. The game is restarted with a dropped ball near midfield with only a Blue attacking player A5 present. The Green team in an act of good sportsmanship does not send anyone to take the dropped ball restart, expecting the Blue team player A5 to kick it back to a teammate to begin the restart. However, after the ball hits the ground A5 immediately kicks the ball forward past the defenders, catching the Green team by surprise. He quickly races ahead, collects the ball uncontested, dribbles forward and hits a rocket shot from the top of the penalty arc which ends up in the goal without being touched by the goalkeeper. The referee should: A. Allow the goal B. Disallow the goal C. Restart with a kick-off D. Restart with a goal kick E. Restart with a retake of the dropped ball F. Restart with an indirect free kick (IFK) G. Restart with a corner kick H. Caution A5 for unsporting behavior 10) The referee allows an advantage when she observes a defender D2 inside the penalty area carelessly foul an attacking player A9, who has a decent, but not obvious, chance to score.

Any eligible Blue player who has not previously kicked, except the Blue goalkeeper, may perform the retake. 13) Law 11 states that gaining an advantage by being in that position means playing a ball that rebounds, is deflected or is played to him from a deliberate save by the goalkeeper. 14) A goal kick is taken by the Gold team while an opposing Red team player A19 is still well within the penalty area. The kick is hit weakly, but does clear the penalty area into play. A19 runs out and collects the ball, where he is able to turn and take a shot, which ends up going wide of the goal.
